In A Christmas Memory Buddy and his cousin don't give the fruitcakes to nextdoor neighbors.  They send them to people they barely know. Buddy says in the story that it makes them feel connected to the outside world. 

They had never given a fruitcake to HaHa Jones, but when they buy the whiskey from him in the story he tells them to keep their money and just send him one of the fruitcakes.  Buddy's cousin remarks that they will "put extra raisins in his cake."

They give fuitcakes to people they have met once or had an encounter with.  They do not give fruitcakes to the realitives they are living with.
